Day trip to Burnley in January

Good afternoon. I am expecting to be in Burnley for a Saturday afternoon in January. Can anyone suggest places to visit which may be open at that time of year. I am interested in history, museums, galleries, architecture and guided walks, in easy reach of the station. Thank you for any help.

You could try Townley Hall, www.burnley.gov.uk/residents/towneley-hall, its about 20 minute walk from manchester road station, which train station will you arrive at.

You could consider their football team on a Saturday too.

Thank you for your reply. That was helpful as I did not know Townley Hall was open in January. It looks an interesting venue.I do not know which station I shall be arriving from, but I shall look into this. Best regards,

Thank you very much. In fact, that is why I am there. While the lads are watching the football, some of us are taking the opportunity of visiting towns, and their history, that we would not usually have travelled to. Thanks a lot.

As if a day trip to Burnley in the middle of winter wasn't a grim enough prospect already ?

Said with tongue firmly in cheek before anyone takes offence ;-)

There's Queen Street Mill if textile history floats your boat. Other than that, not much else in Burnley Im afraid.

Or you could look at the Weavers' Triangle and the Burnley mile canal embankment
